Mitsubishi Eclipse Wiper Issue

I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse where the wipers seem to be malfunctioning. When you pull the handle down one to the intermittent level the wipers stop randomly at different times. In other words, it does not stop intermittently when the wipers reach the bottom. Sometimes it stops mid-way or even when it is close to 90 degrees.

When you pull the handle back up to the off level, the wipers keep going and does not stop at all. You have to turn off the engine to completely stop the wipers. What's wrong and how do you fix this?

Could it be the wiper relay? If so, where is that located?

I don't know if this is too late for you, but it sounds like your wipe switch is broken. This same thing happened to my buddies 98 Eclipse. I know they are a different model year and type, but the switches are pretty much the same. Remove the steering column cover and remove the switch, then replace with a new one from the auto parts store or parts yard.
